Example text

Like children, older adults have been seen as unable to, unwilling to, or perhaps cannot be trusted to make appropriate decisions for themselves, so others need to make decisions on their behalf. This model is uncomfortably close to blaming the victim, and attributes the mental difficulties of a small minority of older adults to everyone of similar age. This approach has resulted in legislation, services, and support that appear to be modeled on child abuse services (Harbison, 1999; Sacco, 1990; Vinton, 1999).

As the existence of elder abuse is often the result of reports and surveys, it is not surprising that the number of older persons includes mainly older women. Males are seen to be physically stronger than are women, and this extends to differences between older men and women. As older women are perceived to be, and often can be, less able to defend themselves and/or escape their abuse, so too are they believed to be more vulnerable to abusive acts. Sexual abuse of older persons is limited to older women, and such abuse against older men has not been discussed.

These women are trapped between two perceived social and health problems: violence against women (domestic violence) and elder abuse. The result is that abused older women’s needs are more often than not overlooked. Alcalde (2005) argues that although violence and abuse happen across the lifespan, researchers, practitioners, and policymakers have created silos: child 18 Aging, Ageism and Abuse: Moving from Awareness to Action abuse, woman abuse, and elder abuse. In this process, not only have we worked separately from our colleagues in other areas but also, she suggests, we have put people into “boxes” so that as an older adult they may either experience elder abuse or domestic violence, not both.
